It is extremely important to choose the correct gear. For example a choice exists between daypacks which can either be internal or external-frame packs. External backpacks work best for new hikers and are much cooler than the internal ones. Similarly one can choose between sleeping bags of goose down or synthetic fabric. While goose down is warmer synthetic is less expensive and requires less maintenance than goose down.
As for general miscellaneous equipment a compass some light rope a can bottle opener a signal mirror and a first aid kit are very important. Extra batteries are a great idea as well if you have devices that require them. Just be mindful about the added weight. Finally clothing will need to be considered. If you are changing elevations the weather can change quickly as well. What started out in the 70 and 80`s can quickly turn into the 40`s and below especially as the sunsets. Don`t get caught without the proper sweaters or blankets. Likewise in the heat of the day having a good hat and sunscreen can prevent you from getting too much sun or even dehydrated. I also strongly recommend a good pair of sunglasses. Yea you guessed it; I forgot those too. Now that you are armed with these basic hiking and camping tips my hope is that you don`t make the same mistakes that I have made. If you plan appropriately and are well-equipped your experience should be safe and enjoyable. So no more excuses get out there and take on the great outdoors and have a blast doing it.
